Plot: In this WWII satire, a young boy very much indoctrinated into the Hitler Youth has his world turned upside-down when he finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their house. With no one else to turn to, he copes by turning to his imaginary friend - Adolf Hitler - and trying to deal with his blind nationalism. -- Chris Kavan

A biting satire that takes on comedy and tragedy with a surprising depth of emotion, Taika Waititi isn't afraid to take chances, which makes him the perfect fit. A lot of credit has to be given to the young leads Roman Griffin Davis and Thomasin McKenzie, whose back-and-forth confrontations make up the backbone of the film. But don't discount the adults with Scarlett Johansson and Sam Rockwell both turning in great performances and Waititi taking on the role of the imaginary Hilter. Charming, brutal, uplifting, maddening - the film manages to run a gamut of emotions and makes for one of 2019's best.

I can't help but think "Jojo Rabbit" works better in theory than in actuality. It's tonally overcrowded, more jokes fall flat than land on target, and the production mostly feels like imitation Wes Anderson. Despite all these faults, it's a daring satire that takes a well-meaning shot at modern day nationalism.

"Your mother took me in. She's kind. She treats me like a person."
Taika Waititi is on a roll recently and rightfully so, because he's got a great comedic vision.
'Jojo Rabbit' is a World War II satire that's both hilarious and surprisingly tragic. Joy, terror, love, hate all in one movie. Waititi knows how far to take a joke and how humor can put on light on ugly issues. While absurd looking on the surface, but on a deeper look it's something unique.
Newcomers Roman Griffin Davis and Thomasin McKenzie take center stage upon the big cast. Their comedic timing, emotional range and overall performances are nothing short than impressive. Also Archie Yates is like the adorable child version of Nick Frost.
Speaking of big name stars. Scarlett Johansson is having a fantastic year …
